Glock 1911 – The Internet Has FACTS

…and many fallacies.

It came across my radar screen recently this never-ending story (and many variants) regarding Gaston Glock & Co. FINALLY making a Glock using JMB’s ubiquitous 1911 design!

About an hour later, having accessed a few different search engines determined that in all likelihood this was a repetition of the original story, going back to at least to 2009…

Complete with high art!

Akin to a Holy Grail, of sorts:

glock 1911

Of course, who knows what the future may bring?  A GLOCK single-action auto, which takes standard 1911 magazines and has replaceable stocks and an external hammer?

Will Gaston choose poorly?

It’s time to ask ourselves what we believe.

  1. I believe … that it really doesn’t matter which logo is on the handle of a good 1911A1 clone, in the long run. As long as it’s true to JMB’s design, then who cares?

  2. Other than the photo showing a 1911 – not an A1 – I won’t disagree. I would like to know who the bureaucrat was that ‘improved’ JMB’s original design to fit their particular hand vice those of pert near all of the rest of us!*

    * in case it isn’t clear – the flat mainspring housing was replaced by the arched one,………………..;-(

  3. That’s an old, old story that seems to come back to the top ever year or two!
